About Asperling (Eperling) de Vaudreuïl, I

After William died, Sprota became the wife of Esperleng, a wealthy miller; Rodulf of Ivry was their son and Richard's half-brother.

Sprota married Esperleng after the relationship with Guillaume/William:

(from Medieval Lands)

SPROTA, daughter of ---.

Guillaume de Jumièges records that Guillaume married "une très-noble jeune fille Sprota…selon l'usage des Danois"[62]. From Brittany.

It is possible that Sprota was Count Guillaume's concubine rather than wife, particularly as no reference has been found to a dissolution of any marriage before she married Esperleng.

She married Esperleng de Pîtres, by whom she had Rodulf [Raoul] Comte d'Ivry.

ESPERLENG de Pîtres, son of --- .

m SPROTA, daughter of --- . From Brittany. Sprota was previously the concubine or wife of Guillaume I Comte [de Normandie].

Guillaume de Jumièges records the marriage of Sprota and "Asperleng" who owned the mills in the valley of la Risle[730].

Esperling & his wife had [four or more] children:

a) RAOUL d'Ivry (-after 1011). Guillaume de Jumièges names Raoul as uterine brother of Richard Comte [de Normandie], specifying that the latter consulted him about arrangements for the succession in Normandy when dying[731]. Comte de Bayeux.

m AUBREE, daughter of --- (-murdered ----). Guillaume de Jumièges records the marriage of Raoul and "Eranberge…née dans une certaine terre du pays de Caux que l'on appelle Caville ou Cacheville"[732]. She is named as wife of Raoul by Orderic Vitalis, who says that she built the castle of Ivry, executed the architect Lanfred to prevent him from completing a similar construction elsewhere, attempted to expel her husband from the castle, and was killed by him[733].

Comte Raoul & his wife had five children:

i) HUGUES d'Ivry (-Oct 1049).

Guillaume de Jumièges names Hugues bishop of Bayeux as son of comte Raoul, when recording that the castle of Ivry was confiscated from him by Robert II Duke of Normandy[734]. Seigneur d'Ivry. Bishop of Bayeux 1015.

Hugues had [two] illegitimate children by an unknown mistress or mistresses:

(a) ROGER .

"Rogerius Hugonis episcopi filius" sold land in Blovilla and Novillula to Sainte-Trinité in an undated charter[735].

(2) HUGUES .

"Willelmo et Hugone eorum filiis" are named in the undated charter of "Rogerius Hugonis episcopi filius"[739].

(b) [AUBREE .

Chibnall speculates that the grandmother of Ascelin Goël may have been the daughter of Hugues Bishop of Bayeux, which may have provided her grandson with a claim to Ivry by inheritance[740], assuming that her illegitimacy presented no obstacle. Her two marriages are shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[741], but the primary sources which confirm them have not yet been identified.

m firstly ROBERT d'Ivry, son of ---. [1060].

m secondly ALBERT de Cravent .]

"Hugo Baiocassine urbis episcopus et Rodulfi quondam comitis filius" donated property to Jumièges by charter dated to [1020/30][748]. It is assumed that the donors were brothers although this is not certain.

v) JEAN d'Ivry (-1079). Brother of Hugues, according to Orderic Vitalis[749]. Bishop of Avranches 1061.

The Chronicon S. Stephani Cadomensis records that "Joannes filius Rodulfi comitis fratris Ricardi" succeeded as Archbishop of Rouen in 1069, having been bishop of Avranches for seven years and three months; the same source records the death in 1079 of "Joannes Rothomag. Archiepiscopus"[750].
